Concrete made of Fibre Waste

The negative CO2 emission, micro-plastic, landfill and other environmental impacts of the textile and concrete sectors are significant. But what if by taking fibre waste from carpets and using it to make concrete you could reduce the negative impacts of both sectors?

After 7 years of research this is exactly what researchers out of the Institute for Frontier Materials (IFM) have achieved.

FibreCrete 100, is a carpet fibre-reinforced concrete that can be applied to driveways, footpaths, cycle paths and industrial hardstand areas. Even better, the inclusion of carpet fibres appears to make the concrete less prone to cracking.
